I had been intrigued by the Kelly Kettle / Ghillie Kettle a long time, as I had been by rocket stoves and all other sorts of camping / survival gear and fire-related things. (The Kelly and Ghillie are pretty much the same thing, but the KK is a US company, the GK version is a UK company, with slightly different options and variations, such as KK has stainless steel, GK is Aluminum only). It’s a small, simple, wood-burning “debris and twig” system designed to boil water quickly on little fuel, and also do general cooking/heating. The bottom line on that claim to fame: It does boil water very well on little fuel, even poor quality/wet fuel, and is OK as a general twig stove for GP cooking.
Details below. Continue reading Kelly Kettle review / first impressions
Happy New Year, all. Hope you have a good one.
No predictions. There are WAY to many variables with a wide range of values, and any sort of reliable information about military actions, the economy, agricultural production, energy production are hard to get, politicians and mega-corps appear bent on suicidal levels or woke and stupid, search engines are failing, and the scenarios for the death rate and disability rate from the vaxx are much to uncertain to do anything more than speculate wildly. Everything from total collapse and billions dead to “muddle through, slowly getting worse” are all plausible.
How does one prepare for that with anything other than prayer and keep on keepin’ on?
Well, here to all of you keepin’ on, I guess.
A study came a little while ago, with the very dry sounding title of “Class switch towards non-inflammatory IgG isotypes after repeated SARS-CoV-2 mRNA vaccination.” A more recent one from November is titled “Conserved longitudinal alterations of anti-S-protein IgG subclasses in disease progression in initial ancestral Wuhan and vaccine breakthrough Delta infections.” The problem outlined is starting to get noticed and understood, as it’s rather technical. It is about the effects on the immune system from the mRNA covid vax. Something like this was hypothesized quite some time ago, and a lot of arguable evidence to support it, but there was no hard data to directly explain the mechanism. Long story short, after 3 doses of the vax appears to trick the immune system into tolerating further exposure to the virus (like a healthy immune system ignores pollen) rather than fighting them (like someone with bad pollen allergies), making a person a walking mutation factory, while also suppressing the ability to clear it… and it increasingly looks like the potential of creating problems clearing other related viruses may also get worse is being realized.
Again, the bottom line is, if you have gotten a shot or two, that’s bad but if you are not dead within six months likely survivable, but the booster is an order of magnitude worse for you immune system (all other bad effects aside), and until you read and understand what this effect is and what will likely happen if you get it, I implore you to say NO to boosters. They are obviously and provably not safe OR effective.
Here are some “plain language” breakdowns of the study, as the study itself is largely incomprehensible to anyone not a medical specialist or an immunologist. We are not quite the zombie apocalypse yet, and we don’t know how long the effect will last, but it looks like, right now, that the 3rd shot, the booster, definitely makes the problem vastly worse.
The trainwreck of all trainwrecks: Billions of people stuck with a broken immune response.
VERY URGENT: Do Covid mRNA vaccines damage our ability to control the coronavirus after a booster shot?
THE WRONG ANTIBODY.
Booster-Caused IgG4 Immune Tolerance Explains Excess Mortality and “Chronic Covid”
New evidence of persistent Spike protein tolerance from breakthrough infections.
IgG4 and cancer – a mechanism of action for cancer relapse and onset.
Short, simple thread: How the discovery of the shots causing more production of IgG4 as opposed to the other classes of antibodies might explain the negative efficacy of the shots.
Each talks about the same problem, but with more or less detail and emphasis and predictions. Long story short, the damage from the vax to the individual immune system is significant, but the damage it might be doing to the overall health of society given how it will cripple masses of people and rise expenses and depress productivity will be… worse.
Sometimes you watch events happen in real time and it looks absolutely insane and inexplicable, totally at odds with any sort of reasonable and observable reality. You search in vain for any sort of coherent explanation that doesn’t sound to a normie like a total wingnut conspiracy theory, even if you think you have the broad strokes correct. Such is the case with modern “education” in America, where it’s got totally off the rails and deep into a bizarre inverted funhouse-mirror world of Marxist dysfunction, where the teachers and admins appear normal in some ways, but act like total blind cult devotees in others.

And herein we have a hunting tale.
Due to circumstances I won’t go in to, this year I’d be heading down to my normal hunting grounds alone on Friday, for opening day Saturday, but would need to head for home no later than about noon Sunday, unless I got a deer last minute and it took past noon to butcher him. So only one and a half days hunting for this outing. I’d be camping out, and decided to go relatively fast and light, with minimal gear and just driving the Jetta (better fuel mileage). Continue reading Deer Hunting 2022, ammo by L.H. Oswald
One of the best short videos I’ve ever seen looking at the downside to vaccines. Only about six minutes. Dr Paul Thomas LICENSE is pulled for GOOD data! Covers SIDS and a variety of autoimmune and other disorders over time, with great graphs. At Minute 5:03 he states: “97% of SIDS cases happen in the first 10 days after vaccine!” That is… tragic. I know someone who lost a child years ago to SIDS at a very young age.
Edit: And another one:
Steve Kirsch interviews Pediatrician Michelle Perro speaks out against the COVID vaccines. 90 minutes, lots of interesting details. Also recommends the book “Turtles All The Way Down: Vaccine Science and Myth” by Anonymous . Talks about the long-term consequences of vaccines and adjuvants as well.
Two years ago I was not generally anti-vax… I am now.
Publishing rights for Heretics of St. Possenti have been returned to me from Castalia House, and it’s now back up in digital form as a self-published book. The reviews have not yet been transferred over, but that should hopefully happen in a day or two.
There are, as of the time of this post going up, still a couple of the physical print editions up for sale, which still have the reviews. That will get fixed sometime soon, too. If you want to snag a “collectable Castalia House publisher edition” copy, now’s the time.
I will be getting it up in paperback in due course, along with everything else on my digital bookshelf, now that some things are a bit more sorted out.
Just a point. There is not a single vaccine in America today given on the entire schedule of recommended childhood vaccines that was tested against an entirely unvaccinated control group. Not a single one was tested against a control group with just the solvent injections, (the solvent is the liquid carrier of the active imuno-response causing particles) which includes things like peanut oil (surge in nut allergies) and other things that read like a witches brew. In every case, they are tested against partially or “otherwise” vaccinated children. Huh. Wonder why they would do that <rhetorical>?
A few books dealing with this topic:

Just in case you are wondering……
The CDC just updated it’s numbers for the first quarter of 2022.
In spite of all the “died suddenly” in the news, and increases casket sales, etc., “officially” there is no change from trend, will all numbers less than 1 SD from the mean. Continue reading Latest CDC birth-death numbers
Finally got “The Stars Came Back” back up on Amazon, so the link at right works again.
Long story short, Castalia House is returning publishing rights to some of their authors for reasons I won’t go into, and things like that never go as smoothly as anyone would like. In any case, that one is now back up, and is buyable again. Now I get to work on getting Heretics back up, then getting them both into physical print.
Then I get to work on getting them all over at Ingram Spark. While hopefully continuing to do at least SOME writing.
